    Say what you will about these guys, but they are real professionals and it seems to me they had a few hits back in the day...

    I know it's "cool" to hate on them but all the live footage I've seen of them was pretty impressive. I remember them doing an a capella Star Spangled Banner in 4 part harmony before a baseball game and they just killed it. Very professional band and way better than that noise all the kids are listening to these days.

    I used to think Huey was boring stuff but I've come to appreciate his recordings as well polished and well thought out. I've come to like his voice too.

    From wikipedia:

    Under the name "Huey Harp," Lewis played harmonica on Thin Lizzy's 1978 landmark album Live and Dangerous.

    And his group Clover was the backing band on Elvis Costello's "My Aim is True."

    If that isn't street cred I don't know what is.

    Huey seems to have kept pretty good company. Check out the two-minute mark of this video:

    Bonus: if you check out the 2:55 mark, you'll see where the Thin Lizzy connection comes in!

    I really wanted t hate that but I gotta say, it was pretty darned good. A bit too slick for me - but those guys can play.

    This is just so ballsy though... And Huey just ain't. Know what I mean?

    People forget how rockin' HL was at the time, compared to the 80's synth pop that was in vogue at the time. They had plenty of "street cred"...

    Huey Lewis and the News is the greatest American rock and roll band of all time.

    Think about it.
